We reveal human behaviour to help organisations understand people

Behavioural Insight | Communications Planning | R&D Innovation


Naked Eye is a team of ethnographic researchers and virtual reality filmmakers. We use video to show you what people are doing, thinking and feeling, and VR to transport you to their world. We specialise in uncovering insights in established and emerging markets for the healthcare, technology and consumer industries.

Naked Eye was founded in 2003 by Nick Leon. London-based, we work out of the same building as our sister company, creative agency VCCP.

Case Studies

Understanding people isn’t easy. It’s why we spend time observing what people do and how they do it. We listen hard to what they say and try to understand what they really mean. We use ethnography to reveal behaviour, and virtual reality to immerse you in their world. We use this expertise to uncover big, revealing truths. Ones that are relevant and meaningful to the people you’re trying to reach. Have a look at our case studies:
